Project update - July 10, 2014
During the summer of 2003, a reproduction of a 1934 Garwood Speedster wooden boat went down in Lake Norman, near Mooresville. It was a beautiful boat, but laying at the bottom in 80 feet of water, many thought the boat was irretrievable - until now. This week, Jeff Buckley and his team floated the boat to the surface. Divers attached inflatable bags and raised the craft, then cleaned it out. The boat and motor were still in good condition and are currently being restored by the new owner - Jeff Buckley.
Project Update - July 12, 2014
Boat stripped and cleaned out on Thursday. Motor also torn apart yesterday, almost perfect. Port side of boat nearly completely stripped of finish. Deck to be stripped tonight.
